Just got the raddest gift from Brian Peck, aka Scuz from The Return of the Living Dead. Most of you know that this is my favorite movie of all time. It has been ever since the first time I saw it - opening night (August 16, 1985) at Cinema 50 in Carson City, Nevada. Surprisingly, I still have my original movie ticket, which I showed to Brian and some other cast members last time I ran into them.

Thanks to Kristy Jett and Brian Peck for the coolest birthday present ever!!!

I realized that I didn’t share the good news here and its high time I did that!

One of my dearest friends in the world and figurehead in the horror community, Kristy Jett has joined my new film as a producer!

Kristy has recently come on board after reading the script and digging it but more than that, she is one of the hardest working women in the horror genre right now.

She is a writer for the insanely popular horror publications HorrorHound and Rue Morgue as well as one of the best damn horror sites (and networks) FEARnet.

She has also worked tirelessly over the last several years to get a re-release of the horror film Popcorn and that hard work has paid off as she will now be producing the retrospective documentary about the film for the upcoming Synapse Films bluray release!

She also has been working with the creative team behind one of our favorite movies, Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon on the sequel to that film Before the Mask where she will serve as Associate Producer!
I’m so thrilled to have Kristy on board. She has been a friend for years and having the opportunity to work alongside her is a dream come true!

I’ve finally decided on my first tattoo. I saw this on tumblr the other day and it immediately spoke to me. To be 100% honest it took my breath away.

I’ve kind of devoted my adult life to the horror genre. It’s been my lifeblood for many years and it has given me peace and solace for even longer.

My friend Kristy Jett and I have discussed that a lot of people (not all mind you) who gravitate towards the genre at such a young age come from some sort of dysfunctional background.

I was kidnapped and abused by my father and shortly after, the thing that I took comfort in the most was horror. Ted E Bear and the great Bear Scare gave way to the Universal Monsters that gave way to the slashers. I wanted everything monster and horror related because of one simple fact: no matter how terrible the on screen horror was, it didn’t match what I lived through.

Horror took me by the hand and gave me the life I live.
